    Rack recommendation for Sir9

    I just finished setting up my Sir9. Bought the frame&fork on pinkbike and added some extra parts I had from old builds. I want to add a rear rack for panniers but having a problem finding something that will fit. The location for the eyelets aren't ideal and the spacing on the lower eyelets (184mm) will stress the welds on most racks. Let me know if anyone with a Sir9 has found a rear rack that works well with this bike.

    in case this helps someone else, I went with a Tubus Logo Classic 29’er Rear Rack. Even with that I needed to use a dropout extension adapter to avoid spreading the rack and breaking a weld (boost spaced rear eyelets are too wide for most racks). I also needed to buy extended rear rack stays from Tubus to get the rack level. A rack from oldmanmountain probably would have been a better fit but those seem really heavy. I'm happy with the rack now that it's on and I just need to find some panniers.
